TFS 2010 - hexadecimal value 0x07 is an invalid character

I recently encountered an issue where my tests in lab management were getting aborted. I really had a hard time figuring out what was really going wrong. I looked into the test run log in the Test Manager->Analyze Test Runs but nothing obvious showed up. I also enabled diagnostic logging in my lab build definition but again nothing showed up.
I then used tcm.exe and created a new test run using "tcm run /create". Then I executed the run using "tcm run /execute" and I got the error: "hexadecimal value 0x07 is an invalid character"
Then I looked into the intellitrace logs in "%localappdata%"\VSEQT\QTController. Here I found that there was an invalid xml in my Assert statement.
Fixing the xml in the Assert solved my problem.
